Potential bus rapid transit station locations to be discussed at community meetings

April 03 2013 | no comments

A series of five community meetings in April will focus on how best to bring transit to Woodward Avenue from downtown Detroit to Pontiac.

It’s part of the Woodward Avenue Transit Alternatives Analysis (AA).

The Woodward Avenue Transit AA is reviewing higher-level transit options for the 27-mile Woodward Avenue corridor from the Detroit River to Pontiac. The study area includes the cities of Detroit, Highland Park, Ferndale, Pleasant Ridge, Huntington Woods, Berkley, Royal Oak, Birmingham, Bloomfield Township, Bloomfield Hills, and Pontiac.

According to SEMCOG, the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, bus rapid transit has emerged as the preferred option for transit along Woodward. Residents will get the chance to see how it works in other cities, including Cleveland, Ohio and  Portland, Oregon.

Those attending will also have the opportunity to give the project team their input on routes and potential station locations and on local feeder bus routes.

Here’s a list of the dates and locations for the community meetings:
